“Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse!” is part of the “If You Give…” series of books. In this book we follow Mouse as he makes Valentine’s cards for all of his friends.
Max: “I like this Mouse. He uses a lot of glue like I use a lot of glue! The bottle is bigger than he is though! I liked when the moose was painting. He uses lots of colors but he got it all over the floor. When they played hide and seek the bunny hid in the bucket and I don’t think the mouse could find him! I want to make Valentine’s too!”
We enjoy the Mouse from “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff and my son was happy to see him in this new book. The illustrations are very cute and fun to look at. Reading the book got my son excited to make valentines for his teachers and to exchange with his friends at preschool. Thus sturdy board book would be great for younger children to help get them in the Valentine’s Day spirit!
